The UAE enjoyed a long period of tax exemption, but the impact of the global market made it necessary to implement a tax system in 2018. VAT was one of the taxes that was levied on the sale of commodities. To help the domestic suppliers, this tax is also levied on imported goods and services. Due to the fact that VAT is levied on both goods and services across the supply chain, the UAE now requires VAT registration more than ever. Manufacturers and merchants must register for VAT in UAE in order to abide by the new tax law. While some providers are required to register, others choose to do so voluntarily.
